Upgrading hard disk in a softmodded xbox without using a chipped xbox (using a pc)

Required Tools:
1) xboxhdm 1.9
2) Torx 10 And Torx 20 Screwdrivers - To Open XBOX
3) A bigger Hardrive
4) FTP Program (flashfxp)
5) A PC ,blank CD-R/W and A CD Burner
6) evox dash (can be installed as an app)
7) DVDdecryptor
Steps:
1. First take a backup from your retail disk (C,E drive and your eeprom) , you can use evox to backup eeprom.(eeprom backup can be found on E)

2. FTP your backup data to your pc using ftp program.

3. unpack xboxhdm onto your pc

4. put the backup eeprom to the xboxhdmlinuxeeprom folder , put C and E folder into the xboxhdmlinux folder and overwrite the ones already there.

5. In the root of xboxhdm is a file named 'make-iso-win', run this file and wait for it to finish.

6. It will make a .iso file. (burn this file with dvddecryptor)

7. take out all your hard disks in your pc and put the new hard disk (for the xbox) , make sure its primary master and first boot is cdrom.

8. put the disk you made in the cdrom drive and boot your pc .

9. you will get a menu,now choose Option 1 (by typing ‘1’) and press enter to boot VGA console with xbox-drive utilities (default). Type ‘xboxhd’ when it asks you for a login. Another list of options will show up, choose option 1 again (the one that says ‘Build a new Xbox HD from scratch’) and it will begin to format and write the partition table etc. If you put your C: and E: onto the CD then when it asks you about them type yes and when it asks you if you would like an F select yes .

10. reboot your pc (we are almost done )

11. Now for locking the hard drive. This time type ‘3’ and hit enter to boot linux with locking/unlocking utilities. Next, type in ‘lockhd -a’. It will now search for the eeprom on the CD and will automatically lock the hard drive. Now turn off the PC and take out the hard drive when it has finished locking. Put the disk in your softmodded xbox .

Nice you just upgraded your hard drive and can be used in your softmodded xbox !!!

cheers
